When Perennis Felix, favorite of the Roman Emperor and would-be enemy of all, heralds his arrival in Glevum with the capricious execution of a slave, there are few who dare to question his actions.

And soon, the ever-vigilant Libertus notices the mysterious disappearance of at least two guests. Is it possible that behind Felix's seemingly accidental death there lies something infinitely more sinister?… (more)
